Some Favorite Mark Twain Quotes

Today marks the 176th Birthday of Mark Twain. So in honor of such a creative, legendary writer, whose work never fails to leave me either laughing or contemplating the deep meaning behind such seemingly simple sentences (or maybe both at once), here is a brief list of some of my favorite Mark Twain quotes. If you have any to add on, please feel free to leave a comment.

‎”A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t.”

“Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”

“All generalizations are false, including this one.”

“Actions speak louder than words but not nearly as often.”

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

And fellow writers might enjoy these:

“Don’t say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.”

“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”
